The body of 23-year-old Mohammed Merah was buried in Toulouse today.
The mayor of Toulouse initially objected to the killer being buried in the area, but bowed to pressure from central government.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy said:
"Let him be buried, and let's not create debate about this"
His brother has been charged with alleged complicity in preparing the killing, though his lawyer insists Abdelkader Merah had no idea what his brother was plotting.
